EUR

The centre of this area located in the south-west, was expressly built by Mussolini in the '30's for the World Expo to celebrate modernity. Its name originates from “ Europa”.  Many of these Mussolini-era structures were directly inspired by imperial Roman art and architecture, albeit in a colder, more sterile form. With the ( Square Coliseum) as its landmark, EUR is noticeably different from other parts of the city.

These buildings are now public institutions and museums but the surrounding area features apartment buildings and duplex houses from the '70 and '80's.

Its about a 20 minutes drive to Rome centre along large avenues lined with trees. The housing in EUR is considered to of be middle to middle-high standard.

Housing in EUR consists mainly of apartment buildings. These apartments can be quite large  with features like AC, garages, elevators, tennis courts etc.

For a standard 2 bedroom apartment, asking price could be from 1500 € to 2000 € month.

There are also some duplex and detached houses here but they become rarely available on the market.

EUR is  well connected by the Metro and public buses but  a car is still advisable to have when living in EUR.
